Even though I haven't been technically a young adult for more than a decade, I read a lot of YA, like 100+ titles a year. To date, I've read everything that YA author Alyxandra Harvey has written. With one recent exception, I'm a big fan of her Drake Chronicles series, and I flat out loved her Victorian ghost story, HAUNTING VIOLET. When I heard she was writing a new stand alone about faeries, I jumped at the chance to read it. Unfortunately, STOLEN AWAY wasn't half the book I was hoping it would be.

First of all, it's short. Really short (288 pages) and it feels like it. All the character developments, romances, and major plot points are rushed. So instead of learning through action and dialog about, for example, Eloise's kitschy love for rockabilly, we just get told that she loves it. Ditto for Jo's obsession with all things British. It made both protagonists feel very two dimensional. The romances, specifically Jo's, happened so fast that I got whiplash. She meets a strange guy, invites him back to her house, and is sharing `heated kisses' with him and wondering why no guy has every made her feel that way before. The whole thing made Jo seem needy and desperate--not to mention incredibly stupid--not characteristics I enjoy in a heroine.

The main plot about Eloise getting trapped in Faery, escaping, and then mounting her own rescue operation felt tedious despite how quickly everything happened. Worse was how quickly Eloise accepted the Faery world. It was a bit like, "I can't believe Faeries exist, but I guess they do, so let's go!" Seriously, that's not much of an exaggeration.

I'm still a fan of Alyxandra Harvey, and will continue to keep an eye out for her books, but after two disappointments in a row, I'm going to have to start giving them the excerpt test before buying in the future.

I almost DNF this one. The story was too slow paced most of the time, and the relationships were WAY too fast! They also didn't have biochemistry or any real relationship at all, to be honest. The way the story was written was also completely confusing! It kept switching from one girls POV to the other and made the whole thing really hard to follow....not to mention to slowed the pacing down . So much I started skimming because it was redundant.

I loved Haunting Violet, really liked the Drake Chronicles but was meh about this book. It was pretty good, I just think it left out a lot that could have made the story richer. Like a better description of the different types of faeries. For instance there's a passing comment about redcaps but it doesn't explain how violent they are or how they keep their caps as red. It would have been nice to have more detail about the hunt. Maybe this author should take some times from Laurel K Hamilton but without the sex and intense violence. She describes faeries and their lives in more detail.

The characters seemed underdeveloped and I didn't empathize as much as I would have liked. The British thing annoyed me a lot because there was a part in the book where the character used the terms knackered and bollocks and I wondered if this was one of those British authors masquerading as Americans. Then I reread the reviews here and remembered the brief reference to her British obsession.

I liked it and was glad I read it but it's not going on my list of favorite books.

I have read some incredible faerie stories from YA authors in the past few years, so I couldn't wait to see what Alyxandra Harvey had written with Stolen Away (especially after hearing amazing things about her other books).

Unfortunately, I found Stolen Away to be rather unremarkable and lacking much of the charm I found in other novels. I was hoping for so much more, and perhaps my expectations were just set too high for this book.

Reason to REad:

1.Some neat, interesting plot twists:
There were a number of plot twists at the end of the novel which I honestly wasn't expecting, and I'm typically pleased with surprises I don't see coming; and the ones in Stolen Away were no exception to this. I really enjoyed that aspect of the book, and wished I had seen more of it throughout the rest of the fairly predictable storyline.
Ultimately, I had an incredibly difficult time connecting (or even liking) any of the characters in the story. As much as I wanted to, I couldn't enjoy them and they all came across as excruciatingly stereotypical and that was disappointing. The romance was bland and predictable- not much meat to it. And did I mention that it moved FAST? Way too fast. The best way to sum it up is with this line from the book:

"I barely knew him but it hardly mattered. We were connected somehow, something precious burned between us." I'm sorry, but no. It almost sounded as if this was supposed to be ironic when it comes to the insta!love common to YA, but I have a hard time wrapping my head around loving someone that way after meeting him 2 days earlier, making out once, and still not knowing his first name.
